Specialized Shiv

Specialized overhauls its timed race bike to create a machine specifically for triathletes.

The original Specialized Shiv was created as a time trial bike and triathletes rigged it up to meet their purposes using add-ons and spacers. The all-new 2012 Shiv is designed specifically for triathletes. Its fit dimensions match the needs of many more triathletes and it offers a wide range of adjustment that allow the bike to match the rider’s fit preferences without using a mountain of awkward spacers. In addition to the tri-specific fit, the 2012 Shiv hides an internal bladder to reduce the need for external hydration products that can add drag to a bike.
